Prove

Then we compute the derivatives using the chain rule and formulas for the derivatives of the exponential and logarithm,

And,

Let

Show that

* Proof. * First, we compute the first-order partial derivative with respect to ,

Then, we compute the first-order partial derivative with respect to ,

Next, we compute the second-order partial derivatives in the statement we are trying to prove,

Finally, putting these together we have,

Show that
